June 14th, 1985, JERRY is a healthy 12-Year-Old boy with dreams of becoming the greatest astronaut who ever lived.
When JERRY’S behavior is misunderstood, his father, PAPA takes Jerry to see a doctor of the “brain.” The next day, JERRY’S mother, MAMA and younger brother EDWARD find him, restrained in a straitjacket. JERRY’S hopes of reaching the stars are lost to a devastating mental health diagnosis.
30 years later, with a dependency on his younger brother, EDWARD, JERRY battles himself, society and the past to try and rise beyond his diagnosis.
When JERRY’S behavior once-again becomes at risk, his future is threatened. In an attempt to save himself, JERRY fabricates a fantastical mission that he insists EDWARD and MANKIND (you) help him with or he’ll have to go to Jupiter.
